The ultimate studio preamp expander is here. EVO SP8 is designed to be the perfect partner for expanding your existing audio interface. Give your studio the performance and capability boost it needs, providing eight intelligent EVO Preamps that set their own levels with Smartgain, advanced AD/DA converter technology and a versatile range of I/O connectivity. Add to that two JFET instrument inputs, the all new, groundbreaking Motion UI control system and exceptional audio performance across the board.

In the studio, sound is everything and EVO SP8’s high performance AD/DA converters use 32-bit technology to make sure you hear your audio accurately at all times, whether you’re recording music or sending audio to your favourite outboard gear and back when mixing. Better converters mean better audio – helping you make creative decisions confidently, identify issues and improve your overall recording and mixing game.

SP8 has been meticulously designed to look amazing on both your desktop and in your rack. Super bright backlit LED lighting not only looks stunning but ensures visibility in the darkest of studios, whilst a solid steel chassis makes sure EVO SP8 is up to the challenges of daily use in the studio and on the road. Designed to slot straight into your studio, EVO SP8 defies the normal with its deceptively small form factor. Although jam-packed full of features, at just over 14in wide with non-slip rubber feet, SP8 works perfectly whether on your desktop, in a portable rig or as a permanent fixture in your studio.
In order to minimise environmental impact, EVO SP8’s detachable rack ears will be available as an optional extra, reducing required raw materials, shipping volumes and thus carbon footprint. EVO SP8’s packaging utilises recycled materials whilst keeping plastic usage to a minimum.
